I don't usually do KSTDT posts in weekends, but here's one in honor of the auditions I helped judge earlier today: I was telling a seventh grader about the All-District process, where the kids go in one at a time to play. This is usually less "scary" than the high school process...
ME: It's not till 9th grade that you'll have to play with everyone in the room.
KID: Then I'll move to Oklahoma.
ME: Where they probably do the exact same thing!
UPDATE: I hope the kid has the moving van ready, because I found out this week that, starting this year, the middle-schoolers do go in all at once now.
